n=floor(190-(r/10)) for 900≤r≤1900

Since the number of units has to be integral, and the question says vacancy increases for an increase of $10.

900≤r≤1900 can also be expressed as an interval [900,1900].

B)

Revenue for each unit = r-100

number of units = n = floor(190-(r/10))

Profit, P(r)

=Revenue - maintenance

= (190-(r/10))(r-100)

= (r^2-2000*r+190000)/10

= (2000r-r²-190000)/10

For a maximum profit, set marginal profit to zero

P'(r) = 200-2r/10 = 0

r=1000

if r=1000 is at the maximum, P"(r)<0

P"(r) = -2/10, therefore r=1000 is a maximum.

Also check that n is an integral number:

n=(190-(r/10))=190-1000/10=90

Profit = P(1000)=$81,000
